Bathgate is a good place to go out at the weekend but apart from that theres not much to do. The best pub in Bathgate is certainly The Livery but the James Young is good. The best night club without a doubt is the twig with a nice range of teenagers and those clubbers who are getting on a bit. A good crowd! Another good club to go to is round the back of the dreadnaught bar and hotel which is a quality rock night but watch out for the goths. There are a few hotels but none of them are very good but the Holiday Inn is not bad. One place to stay away from is Room at The Top which is very over rated and is full of under agers and they are all a$$ holes mainly. The shopping isn't very good but there is a great little shop called Victoria Gallery which is and art gallery and gift shop and also frames pictures for very good prices. There is a large shopping centre in neighbouring Livingston which is pretty good. The Sports centre has a good gym but doesn't have a swimming pool but there is a swimming pool near the centre. Another good thing is Bathgate Golf club which is a quality course and is one of the best in the area and it also serves good food and has a good bar. So thats Bathgate for you, a bit of a dump but has a few quality pubs, some good sports activities and a couple good clubs. If you want any more information on it just ask me!
